Quote of the Day
“This is not just a radical change to the program, it's absolutely villainous. ... We can be sure that every day this administration is in office, it will try to take health coverage away from as many Americans as it can.”
Paul Waldman, “The Trump administration's cruelty knows no limits. Here's the latest,” in The Washington Post. What is the Trump admin up to? Allowing states to change Medicaid from entitlement to “block grant,” meaning the state gets a block of money and it runs out of money, well, that's just tough shit for anyone or any family that needs the help. Waldman is right; it's absolutely villainious. The highlighted should be repeated every day by every Democrat during the 2020 campaign. Begin there.
